Zords Revealed in New ‘Power Rangers’ Posters
Lionsgate & Saban Films have released a batch of character posters for the upcoming Power Rangers movie, giving us a glimpse of each of the Zords, the gigantic assault vehicles piloted by each of the film’s leading Rangers.
Dean Israelite‘s film, which is a reboot of the ’90s TV series, stars Ludi Lin as Black Ranger/Zack, Naomi Scott as Pink Ranger/Kimberly, RJ Cyler as Blue Ranger/Billy, Becky G as Yellow Ranger/Trini, and Dacre Montgomery as Red Ranger/Jason respectively. Bryan Cranston also stars as Zordon, the team’s floating-head leader, while Elizabeth Banks will take on the role of master villainess Rita Repulsa.
The first trailer for the new Power Rangers movie will premiere at October 2016’s New York Comic-Con, during a panel for the movie. The action-packed feature film is set for release on March 24, 2017. Take a look at the quintet of character posters in the gallery below.
Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.
Update: SNL alum Bill Hader will bring his singular oeuvre of weirdo voices (the voice of Star Wars droid BB-8 in The Force Awakens) to the role of Alpha 5, the Power Rangers’ robot sidekick. According to the movie’s official Twitter account, the panicky robot ’s “aye-yi-yi” catch phrase will not be forgotten.
